Пираты Ледового моря

Pirates of the Ice Sea

Whitehead is a thunderstorm in the northern seas, but not because he robs ships. He is not interested in wealth, he does things much worse: he steals children. The worst nightmare has come true for two sisters, the younger of whom has been caught and the eldest has gone alone in search of her.
Siri makes her way through cold, snow, wild animals and even wilder people. Sometimes there are kind people on her way, but more often they are dangerous and scary, and for the most part, none of the adults is eager to help withthe last lonely girl, and she has to deal with everything herself.

It's just some kind of walking through the throes: only, it seems, she got out of one scrape, but it wasn't there, out of the fire - yes into the frying pan! The girl comes face to face with wolves, finds herself alone on a deserted island, she is put under lock and key, then she tries to negotiate with some scumbags... And what happens there, there are a million events...
The book is hard, cold, there is hunger , heartlessness, poverty. There is even death. And yet this is a book for children, the abyss will not open here. The author comes very close to the forbidden line, but never crosses it. For example, the topic of kidnapping: children are stolen so that they work in the mines, there is no talk of anything else. Likewise with other dangerous topics.

Such a book will impress a teenager, but will not frighten, will not shake confidence in life. The end in it is good, all of us are alive (at the same time, there was no unnecessary enthusiasm and sugariness).

Well, Scandinavian literature is at its best, as usual!
